England’s most capped full-back Ashley Cole has been released by Roma, the Italian Serie A club said on Tuesday.

He made just 15 appearances across all competitions last season and had not featured a single time on a match sheet during the current campaign.

Italian media claim Cole could move to the United States to play in Major League Soccer.

Cole won 107 England caps before retiring from international duty in 2014 after being omitted from his country’s World Cup squad.

During a glittering club career he won three Premier League titles, the FA Cup seven times, one League Cup and the Champions League with Chelsea in 2012, adding the Europa League a year later.
